It was a surprise to find these twist-up crayons at Staples. I picked them up to keep in my go-bag, and they turned our to be a of pretty good quality. I was able to make use of them right away at the New York Container Terminal. Most of the morning was spent sketching before getting into a day of shooting photographs for NYCT's annual promotional calendar.
These Cachet Studio 10 x 8 sketchbooks are great. They have 80 pages of 70lb paper that takes ink, pen and washes very well. It also has an elastic band enclosure that comes in handy.
|This pack of 24 has a pretty good color assortment.
To draw wide flat marks I snap off a big piece at the tip and
use it like a mini pastel. There is a generous amount
of crayon in the barrel, so you don't need to worry about
going through a color too fast.

|The black works great for quick sketches.
The 10 x 8 Cachet Wirebound Sketchbook is a
comfortable size to work with. I've used few of them lately.
I've gotta say these were a pretty good buy and I'd recommend them... not bad for a Staples brand item.
